This timeless, chic waterfront home on 26 spectacular acres with a private beach is listed for sale off Narrow River Road in Orient, the community at the tip of the North Fork.
Built in 2002, this six-bedroom sophisticated home with an understated elegance has two master suites, four and a half bathrooms in the main house, plus two more bedrooms in a guest cottage. The property, which has nearly as much square footage as Ellis Island, is situated in an unbelievable setting that offers 500 feet of private beach, spectacular sunsets and absolute privacy.
The main house comes equipped with 5,700-square-feet of living space that includes an eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, three fireplaces and a fully finished basement with a gym and playroom. Outside, the property has an in-ground pool, a pool house, porch, patio, tennis court and three-car detached garage.
The home is two miles west of the Orient Point ferry to New London, Conn. It’s two miles east of the ferry to Shelter Island and the Greenport Long Island Rail Road station—the last stop the LIRR makes on the North Fork. The quaint Village of Greenport is the nearest downtown full of shops and restaurants.
It’s also three blocks from Orient Harbor, two miles from Orient Beach State Park and a short drive from the North Fork Wine Trail, home to dozens of local vineyards.
The property falls within the Oyster Ponds Union Free School District that has just one school: The Oyster Ponds Elementary School, which teaches students from kindergarten through grade 6. Children in the community then go on to Greenport Junior/Senior High School, which was ranked one of the best in New York State by U.S. World & News Report’s annual Better High Schools score card.
The house is listed for $10,000,000, not including the annual property taxes of $38,808.
